New wiring for this guy courtesy of a kit from Tone shapers. CTS pots, switchcraft jack and switch (not used), orange drops (if you care), and treble bleeds. It even comes with a choice of braided wire or shielded 4 wire.

Good stuff and $80 for the kit (shipped off Amazon au) is a good rate for name brand parts

Maybe a dollar worth of plastic? Plus my labour for the 4 minutes it took to knock up the 3d model :lol:
